The Tri-Fold's unique patented design allows an incredible thirteen different positions, including 8 lounge positions and 4 chair positions. The back angle can be set to any of four positions and the foot-rest has swing down legs so that it can be used in the foot-up or foot-down position, additionally the foot-rest section folds under out of the way when not in use. But that's not all, the Tri-Fold also quickly and easily converts to a full size 10 inch high platform bed by simply folding the back down flat and raising the foot-rest. Our solid hardwood futon frames are the finest quality unfinished frames on the market. Unlike most pine frames we kiln dry our hardwood to 8% moisture content and plane the wood on 4 sides which yields a smooth clean surface with rounded edges. This pure untreated wood is preferred by many consumers seeking a natural, hypo-allergenic alternative to todays chemical laden products. PLEASE NOTE: Assembly Required. Mattress not included. Works best when used with a FLEXIBLE futon mattress made to work with tri-fold frames. -SORRY, WE DO NOT SHIP TO ALASKA OR HAWAII.
